I'm sad to announce that I must discontinue the Jitterbuggin' contests. Of course, I haven't had one in a while so I'm sure most of you were suspecting this. The reasons are many, but please know that I have loved all the fabulous work you've entered on Jitterbuggin' and wish I could keep it going. Perhaps later I might add a special contest or two. Until then, keep being creative!

Aren't you ready for something bright and cheery? I know I'm tired of the grey, gloomy weather and want some sunshine in my life. So this week's challenge is to let the sunshine in! Use the sketch (I thought it was a great one to use up some scraps....yeah!)......include yellow somewhere on your card.....and add something with stripes! As always, include something "Cricut".....and make it happy!
By the way, the images for my sample card and header came from Everyday Mom Ideas. She has some wonderful free digital kits and other wonderful creative "goodies."
